, they were stunned. we will go to a hotel for a few days until they find us an alternative home she says. their 9-year-old daughter said she was frightened when she heard the initial siren and then the large explosion. an israeli member of parliament who came to the house minced no words in what he thought israel had to do. >> they are ready to go further. >> there's a major debate in israel on whether that's wise. a former commander and mayor of beer sheva says iz ray leer air power can get it done alone. while we were in the city 11 hamas rockets entered the city. some interintercepted by the iron dome system. others got through and caused casualties. we were allow today go inside the emergency medical command center. sirens alert them and they brace for the onslaught of calls. we're inside an israeli ambulance. we've just left the command center heading towards an area where rockets just landed and currently there are injured and maybe even worse. we'll see what's going on. sharon howard is the liaison officer helping to coordinate medical care. >> many casualties, also medical units
an office in the building. islamic jihad is a group that israel and the u.s. consider a terrorist organization. regular life in gaza city is pretty much ground to a halt. stores are closed and shuttered. streets which would normally be filled with people are largely empty. most people just try to stay indoors as much as they can, only venturing out when they absolutely need to in order to buy supplies for their families. otherwise, it's just too dangerous to go out. these days, for israelis along the border and residents of gaza city, there is no such thing as regular life. as the battle enters its seventh day, casualties, rage and grief grow on both sides of the border along with the fear that the worst may be yet to come. i'm joined by wolf blitzer in jerusalem, also here with ben wedeman and arwa damon. arwa, yesterday you were at the scene of what was the most controversial attack, a strike on what israeli forces said was a building owned by a hamas official, commander of an artillery unit. they say initially he had been killed, then stepped back from that. at least nine membe

opportunity in the united states of america. thanks for joining us. "ac 360" starts now. >>> good evening, everyone. we're coming to you tonight live from gaza city, where today, we have seen continued violence in what was day six of this conflict. we begin tonight with breaking news at this hour. new explosions rocking the city of gaza. just moments ago off in the distance, what sounded like rolling thunder, the sound of explosions somewhere in gaza, not in the actual area that we can see so it must be on the other side of the building where we are right now. earlier also in the past hour, we saw a number of rockets being fired from gaza city toward israel and we saw israel's iron dome air defense system actually take out some of those rockets in midair. so it doesn't seem like they actually reached across the border into israel and actually land in israel. we've seen explosions really over the last several hours, though not as active as we saw last night, but it was a very busy day here in gaza, a day -- deadly day as well. take a look. [ sirens ] >> day six of the battle between hamas
not work with netanyahu, it's interesting to see them work on a peace deal. >> nice to have you with us, dana, as always. >>> "newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. see you back here tomorrow morning. hey, carol. >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. we begin with breaking news. a possible cease fire about to take hold in the israel/gaza conflict. the news comes from egypt's president, trying to broker a truce. minutes ago he declared that israel will soon halt its air strikes on gaza. along egypt's border with gaza, reza sayeh. tell us more. >> reporter: we don't want to jump to conclusions. we should be very cautious. there are growing signs from where we are standing in egypt that there could a closing in on a truce or cease fire. latest sign is a statement made by egyptian president mohamed morsi, according to state tv. he said that, quote, israeli gra aggression would end on tuesday. that, of course, is today. that's consistent with similar statements we've heard from other officials late last night. we spoke with a senior egyptian off
's difficult for all parties, but it's not over and the best choice for all of us is to stop shooting. >> you'll hear more from that exclusive interview in a moment. we begin with cnn's arwa damon live in gaza city. arwa, i had a fascinating conversation with president peres earlier. he's still saying that it could go either way but what is your sense on the ground about the likely prospects of a cease-fire and how long will the israelis give it before committing to a possible ground offensive? >> reporter: the likelihood of a cease-fire seems to be increasingly elusive the longer this does drag on, and all through the night, we have been hearing the sound of air strikes, some of them have actually shook the building that we're standing in. we have also been seeing rockets continuously being fired from gaza city, from the center of the city towards israel. not a lot of optimism on the ground here amongst residents of the city who have been through this on so many occasions in the past, that there will be any sort of cease-fire that is going to take effect in the near future, not to mention on
around the corner. >> and ben, i know right before you literally came on the air with us, there were a couple of rockets that went off behind you. how frequently do they strike? >> they're sporadic and in no sense is it through the the day. every few hours. you'll hear sort of a deep roar and push as it goes out. i say that's about a third of a mile from here. about four or five rockets went out. but we saw them way up in the sky hit by those missiles of israel's iron dome system, so it doesn't appear that they actually reached their targets. on the other side of the border. >> thank you very much. reporting from gaza and now, let's go to israel. fred is in ashkelan, and does the escalation you've seen in this conflict seem different than what you've seen in prior conflicts between hamas and israel? >> reporter: well, certainly, if you look at the civilian population here, they seem to be a lot more worried than in the past. one of the things that's going on is that there are a lot of rockets falling down on the area here around gaza. certainly a lot more than you would have at norma
